Always remember. Everything with these folks is about distraction from something even worse. Everyone is focusing on crazy Rudy and that means there is something even more insane about to come out.
It’s been a while since my last “Viral News Dump”, but the news is soooo plenteous, and there is no easy way to say which should be whittled out and which should remain (though, believe it or not, some actually DID hit the editing room floor), so what I did was renew the 2 part series “Viral News Dump”. My threads are NEVER short walks, nor short sprints, they are usually at least the equivalent of running the mile…THIS, like my other “Viral News Dumps” is a “Marathon”.
This is not a “bullet point” presentation. Nor is it even a “dictionary”. No, this is more akin to the “Encyclopedia Britannia” of the news.
Read, peruse, study a little now. Digest it. Use it. Come back later for more…unless you’re ready for a Marathon.
LET’S COMMENCE, SHALL WE?
FIRST LET ME LINK TO THE FIRST TWO PREVIOUS INSTALLMENTS ON “VIRAL NEWS DUMP”:
THE ABOVE ARE FROM MAY AND JUNE OF 2017…A YEAR AGO…NOTICE WHAT WE KNEW THEN!
Once again, another compilation of News, headlines, videos, and links followed with a summation of “Just what have we learned?”
Certain so-called Conservatives, Alt-Right, and other assorted Fascists, Socialists, Liberals and Marxists in an unusual cabal of political inanity are still saying there is “no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion in the last election”.
These R.I.N.O.s, Alt-Right, and assorted Leftists are tripping and stumbling over mountains of evidence from ALL sources- Conservative, MSM, Liberal, Independent, and even EYE-WITNESSES- to carry the swamp water for a man who is nothing but a New York Liberal, Liar, Con-Man, Fraud, Egomaniac, and Arrogant Blow-Hard, Donnie El Trampo.
Why do they do it?
Some are bought off, the R.I.N.O.s/Faux Conservatives, Populists, talk-show hosts…
Some have been bullied, senators, reps, pundits…
Others are deluded, many from the aforementioned groups, along with Bernie Sanders and HRC followers who see NO difference on many issues…
And some are willful, in-the-know followers who share DT’s “vision” for America, David Duke, The KKK, White-Nationalists and the Russian Mob…
We KNEW THAT THEN.
We KNOW MUCH MORE NOW.
HOW MUCH MORE?
A LOT! HERE IT GOES…
LET’S BEGIN WITH “TASTY TIDBITS”…LIKE THIS…
This jumped out for me: Vekselberg was “detained and questioned by federal agents related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe earlier this year.” Mueller has known at least about aspects of this for quite a while. In general: Mueller knows a lot.
How money flowed through Michael Cohen’s multi-purpose shell company
Replies to Bill Kristol on Twitter:
It’s my understanding that Nunes also knew about Vekselberg. In general: Nunes obstructs a lot.
IMHO Nunes is an obstruction all by himself
One Twitter Patriot replied:
He’s six months out in front of the rest of us
Trump today: “When I make promises, I keep them.” Like how he’d make sure ObamaCare was repealed, the deficit slashed, funding for Planned Parenthood & sanctuary cities ended, all illegals deported, China declared a money manipulator and the wall, paid for by Mexico, built?
Since Trump’s election, corporations paid millions of dollars to a shell company created by Michael Cohen, a man who doesn’t appear to practice law and is known as a “fixer” for Trump. Why? Isn’t this the “swamp” Trump promised to drain?
In reply to Reanto, Richard LeBlanc asked this, rhetorically I presumed, and with a dose of sarcasm and humor to boot:
I have never drained a swamp or promised to drain one but let me ask this of the professional swamp drainers out there. Is it common the triple the size of a swamp you promised to drain?
Michael Cohen’s attorney, Steve Ryan, won’t discuss the $500,000 Michael Avenatti says Cohen received from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg in 2017. “I understand the shorthand you’re using, but it wasn’t a payment,” Ryan says before hanging up.
When is a payment not a payment? When it’s illegal?
So he’s not denying Cohen got the money, just denying what it was for. That, at least, seems to confirm 50 percent of what
@MichaelAvenatti claimed, right? #HottieAvenatti has been NOT wrong yet and this is huge. Now we need the proof Trump knew n were free. Remember Cohen taped everything and kept everything.
If it wasn’t a payment to Cohen… then what? Was Cohen a go-between who relayed the $500,000 to someone else?
Didn’t Giuliani say as much in one of his interviews about him handing it off to the person it was intended for. I could have sworn he said that.
[ME: YES. Giuliani said it was used to pay off Stormy Daniels, but “NOT as hush money for a Presidential candidate” but rather to “protect Trump’s family”. Yeah…right…]
Ummmm when you give someone money…and they do sometjing for money….what is it if not a payment? Being corrupt is so confusing….the language is so oppositional.
[ME: Yep. With Liberals, and Trump and his syncophant followers ARE Liberals, language and mean “whatever”, even nothing, “truth” is what they (currently) say it is even if it contradicts what they said previously, or is diametrically opposed to reality.]
It was a gift. You know, the kind where favors are expected .
Ohhhhhh a gift….with benefits.
Better than a friend with. Cant have those kind of titles in mob world. No friends..its I know a guy who knows a guy,lol.
BREAK DOWN OF THE PAYMENT…SO FAR:
$500,000 to Cohen from oligarch
+$775,000 from home equity line
-$1.6m “Broidy” abortion
-$130k Stormy Daniels
$455,000 payments we don’t know about yet
Russian oligarchs don’t just accidentally make 500K “donations” to Americans. Miracles do happen but somehow think that’s not what this was …
What a coincidence. Russia is involved. Trump’s “fixer” is involved. Looks shady. Smells shady. And Cohen’s primary client is Trump. Draw your own conclusions. Whatever they are; remember, Mueller is at least 5 steps ahead of you.
AND, LASTLY FROM NATASHA’S THREAD:
Wait so they’re not denying the money transfer?????
[ME: NO, they are NOT denying what is now clearly obvious.]
Can u imagine how Republicans in Congress would react if a Russian oligarch sectioned by the US Govt had paid Hillary Clinton’s personal fixer $500k, after she was elected President? They’d be setting their hair on fire, rightly so. Instead, all we’re getting is crickets…
If you believe, as I do, the Broidy $1.6m Playboy playmate payment which involved an abortion, was actually Trump’s…. And the RNC is paying Trump’s legal bills….. Did poor unknowing evangelicals PAY FOR DONALD TRUMP’S ABORTION?
Isn’t it convenient that Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal broke this “false story”?? (It’s Trump’s affair, Trump’s baby, Trump’s abortion)
Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Negotiated $1.6 Million Settlement for Top Republican Fundraiser
The 2017 deal was on behalf of Elliott Broidy, a businessman who faced allegations he impregnated a former Playboy model, and resembles one Mr. Cohen arranged with Stormy Daniels
President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer negotiated a deal in late 2017 to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who said she was impregnated by a top Republican fundraiser, according to people familiar with the matter.
IN OTHER NEWS…
Another Trump lawyer was just exposed for troubling link to Russia
The day after it was revealed Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen received $500,000 in payments from a financial firm linked to a Russian oligarch aligned with Vladimir Putin, Pro Publica reports another longtime Trump personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, also represented the very same Russian firm as recently as last year.
Kasowitz says he has represented the private equity firm Columbus Nova since 2010; Columbus Nova operates as the U.S. investment vehicle for Renova Group, a financial company run by Putin ally, Viktor Vekselberg. Columbus Nova also happens to be founded and run by Vekselberg’s cousin, Andrew Intrater. Vekselberg and Renova Group were both targeted by U.S. sanctions in April; Vekselberg and Intrater have been questioned by Robert Mueller.

IS THERE ANYONE CONNECTED TO AND WITH TRUMP WHO IS NOT SOMEHOW ALSO CONNECTED TO AND WITH PUTIN-RUSSIA??!!!!
Bombshell report reveals Russian Oligarch gave $500K to Michael Cohen to pay off Stormy Daniels
More from bombshell
Financial records reviewed by The New York Times show that Mr. Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer and longtime fixer, used the shell company, Essential Consultants L.L.C., for an array of business activities that went far beyond what was publicly known. Transactions totaling at least $4.4 million flowed through Essential Consultants starting shortly before Mr. Trump was elected president and continuing to this January, the records show.
Among the previously unreported transactions were payments last year totaling about $500,000 from Columbus Nova, an investment firm in New York whose biggest client is a company controlled by Viktor Vekselberg, the Russian oligarch.
NOW FOR “FAIR AND BALANCED”… **snicker**
Just In: Donald Trump’s eldest son Trump Jr. has a new girlfriend
To say that the Trump Administration and Fox News have been engaged in an incestuous relationship isn’t exactly breaking news. The cable news giant has functioned as the unofficial propaganda outlet for the president since the campaign.
They’ve run favorable, often coordinated coverage around the clock, and they constantly stack their opinion shows and panel “debates” with Trump loyalists and sycophants.
But they’ve also served as a staffing agency for the White House. New National Security Advisor John Bolton worked at Fox News before joining the administration, as did State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert, communications adviser Mercedes Schlapp, and Treasury spokesman Tony Sayegh. Others, like Trump-Russia lawyer Jay Sekulow, were frequent guests on shows hosted by Trump loyalists like Sean Hannity and the now departed Bill O’Reilly before Trump hired them
While it is more than a little awkward to see one news agency so intertwined with the executive branch of our government, at least it hasn’t been inappropriate or disgusting.
Until now. Page Six reported late Wednesday that the relationship between Team Trump and Fox News has moved beyond the friend zone. President Trump’s newly divorced eldest son, Don Jr., is reportedly dating Kimberly Guilfoyle, one of the co-hosts of Fox News’ afternoon opinion show, The Five.
“Multiple sources exclusively tell Page Six that Don Jr. and Guilfoyle have been dating for a few weeks,” writes Emily Smith…
Rudy Giuliani delivers shocking announcement about Mueller and Trump interview (Details)
Rudy Giuliani has barely been on Trump’s legal team, and he’s already thrown his boss under the proverbial bus multiple times. And when any other administration would pull him away from the cameras, these bumbling idiots keep shoving this old moron in front of the spotlight any chance they can. And it’s only proving to have backfired on them – time and time again.
After incriminating his boss during numerous interviews, Rudy deemed it appropriate to appear “strong” in the media, and announced that he’s giving Mueller a “deadline” of May 17th to figure out all the details pertaining to his interview with Trump.
Specifically, Rudy said,
“You need a sort of action-forcing event. I think that’s a good one for us, is the special counsel.” He elaborated that this sort of message is pointless, and doesn’t even necessarily mean anything has to happen by then. Adding, “I can’t walk into it and say ‘absolutely.’ I don’t speak for them. I don’t know if it can get complicated by another, you know, another situation where they – we find that they’ve engaged in misconduct.”
What? Bumble a little more, you doofus.
This is a showcasing of feigned bravado. And it’s blatant. Anyone with 20/20 vision can see their guilt from a mile away. It’s truly only a matter of time before this whole administration feels the sweet, sweet sting of justice.
Mueller is making the request for the subpoenas in the Alexandria, Virginia, court where Manafort is facing trial on several charges, including bank fraud. Just last week, a judge rejected a lawsuit filed by Manafort that had challenged Mueller’s authority.
A spokesman for the special counsel confirmed to The Hill that the filing is an additional set of requests, after prosecutors previously requested 35 sets of blank subpoenas for the trial.
Cohen Cashed in as a ‘Trump Whisperer’
Novartis ended up paying $1.2M for one meeting
By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff
Posted May 10, 2018 5:44 AM CDT
(NEWSER) – Michael Cohen made millions of dollars after the election as a “Trump whisperer,” charging corporate clients large sums for insights into the thinking of the new administration—but it’s still unclear whether his behavior was illegal or merely “swampy.” Sources tell the Washington Post that after President Trump took office, Cohen boasted to potential clients that he spoke to Trump often and was still the president’s personal attorney and “fixer.” One associate says that in the summer of 2017 Cohen told him: “I’m crushing it.” Analysts say Cohen, whose clients included a company linked to a Russian oligarch, could be in deep trouble if he promised government actions in return for cash. In other coverage:
- A $1.2 million meeting. Drug company Novartis says it hired Cohen for $100,000 a month to advise it on the administration’s approach to ObamaCare repeal and other issues—but it decided after a single meeting that he “would be unable provide the services” needed. The company still paid Cohen a total of $1.2 million because it had signed a one-year contract, the Hill reports. The company says it cooperated with Robert Mueller’s investigation in November when it was asked about the Cohen payments.
LASTLY, IN CLOSING TWO INFO LADEN TWEETS ABOUT LITTLE, LYIN’, LIBERAL DONNIE EL TRUMPO:
Evil Heidi Cruz was 1 of 12k VPs at Goldman Sachs & wrote ANTI-NAU paper for Council on For. Rel. as a temp worker.
AND ANYONE WHO COMPARES TRUMP TO REAGAN (REAGAN DID NOT LIKE NOR TRUST TRUMP. TRUMP HATED REAGAN) needs to know THIS:
To compare Reagan w/
#DonTheCon is not only offensive but repulsive
Would Reagan EVER put a Democrat Obama/Killary donor like Mnuchin as Sec. Treasury? Would RR EVER sign a $1.3T budget w/$ to PP? Does it look like THISAdm of Soros puppets, CFRs, Bushies & GS is 1st?
There’s the 3rd installment of “VIRAL NEWS DUMP”…put on a pot of coffee…sit back…read…
